My Brother's Keeper

Matthew 18:15-35

“I just don’t want to get involved.”

That could well be the motto of modern-day Christianity. For the sake of privacy, tolerance, and forgiveness, we allow fellow believers to wade into the most grievous, dangerous of sins, and never say a word. Adultery, gossip, stealing, hateful attitudes, lying—no sin seems worth offending a church member or costing a friendship.

But there is a problem. The goal of living in the Body of Christ is not to keep your friends and avoid confrontation. God wants His children to be intimately active in each others’ lives—especially where sin is involved. Refusing to help a sinning believer is the spiritual equivalent of a lifeguard refusing to save a drowning man.

In My Brother’s Keeper, John MacArthur explores one of the most neglected, yet transforming, responsibilities of an obedient congregation: church discipline. This careful study of Matthew 18 spells out the step-by-step process you and your church can use for rescuing a believer from sin’s deadly grip. You’ll also find a clear explanation of Christ’s own teaching on the subject of forgiveness. A vital study for establishing and maintaining church purity!
